The whole film captures the feeling of those old epic feeling sci-fi films from the '70s in a big way, with the entire cast playing it straight and earning some great laughs.Well worth a look.

(de) wrote: The Returned is a cool and refreshing take on the ubiquitous and tired zombie genre. Sure, it's a bit vanilla in its characterization, and at times it can be downright depressing...and anyone expecting a fast-paced blood and guts zombie outing will leave wanting. However, those looking for some successful twists, rampant paranoia thrills, cool cinematography, and an original premise need to look no further.

However, if you want the absolute sh#t scared out of you, he's usually a pretty good choice. I first saw this movie in college 25 years ago, and to this day it's the only film that has ever given me nightmares. Using a classic "double tap" ending, Carpenter ensures that the viewers don't leave without their hearts racing.

Since this was filmed in 1966, rookie documentarian Frederick Wiseman, along with his minimal crew, was given almost complete access to the goings on inside MCI-Bridgewater, a facility for the criminally insane. At the time there were no laws protecting the inmates' privacy, likewise any standards for ethical treatment were only imposed after the film was released. Watching the film today is like peering into a barbarous past, where the mentally ill were considered a liability and treated like cattle. Sure, we're a few steps removed from the ice baths and torture chambers of the early 20th century, but the program at Bridgewater, run by an eccentric Romanian doctor, is almost as harsh. The patients are given regimented schedules, which seem to involve a lot of puttering around in the yard, and also compulsory doses of medication. One essential right given modern patients is the freedom to refuse medication. Not so here. There have been remarkable advances in the pharmaceutical field in the past 40 years, but in 1966 there was no such thing as Prozac or Zoloft or lithium pills or anti-psychotics. Almost every patient is on Thorazine (which was administered by orderlies, who would oftentimes pocket extra meds), with exceptions being the catatonics who are given electric shock therapy. After they become manic (if they're lucky), Thorazine is an inevitable cure for their institutionally imposed ills. One inmate, a talkative Russian bloke, seems to be articulate and logical, but we learn this is the result of ECT after he was tranferred from MCI-Walpole in a catatonic state. Of course the "experts" scratch their heads and prescribe more Thorazine. Poor Vladimir will be in there for a long time. Most contention springs from the almost maniacal joy the authority figures derive from their positions of power. Witness the orderlies giving a running commentary while an old gent takes a bath, or the sadistic "dialogue" they have with an ex-teacher who seems to have Tourette's coupled with severe muscular tics. We learn the man's name is Jim. As he paces around his cell, butt naked, stomping out a strange rhythm, the orderlies continue jesting about "cleaning his cell"; of course there's not a damn thing in there except bare brick walls and a concrete floor. He collapses in a corner after a time, and his eyes flitter briefly at the camera. It's the look of a terrified animal. It's most telling that Wiseman doesn't have us learn anyone's names except those of select patients. The title comes from a Vaudeville style song and dance show devised by the guards, and it's used as an effective (and downright Lynchian) bookending structure. Wiseman's camera operator knowingly zooms past the stiff choreography and rigid movements of the patients, right into their faces. Some have eyes that dart around nervously at the end of every stanza, while some simply stare at the floor while they flail around their pom-poms. The very presence of the camera crew is a gross violation of their privacy, but instead of exploiting the crazies for their entertainment value, Wiseman subtly points an accusing finger at the tyrannical correctional system. The final bit of court-mandated disclaimer text is so sarcastic it acts as a final bit of damning evidence.

(it) wrote: A good film but a bit too much jumping around with the timeline at times making it confusing to follow. At times it did seem slow and monotonous but the story was very good and also very disturbing.
(ru) wrote: I am guessing that cinematographer Gordon Willis had to shoot this and another turkey, "The Money Pit," to atone for his comparing himself to Rembrandt! As you can imagine, it's a superficial story about health clubs being single's bars. But, in the hands of serious director James Bridges, it's trying to be a movie about journalistic ethics. Of course, it doesn't work, and is considered to be one of the 80's greatest flops. The cheesy 80's music and costumes eternally date the movie and make it only a superficial document of the decade.
